How to spend 1 day in Santorini?


Start your 1-day Santorini tour by first visiting the Perissa Beach. If you are early enough, you can catch a glimpse of the sun rising over the sparkling waters of the Aegean Sea. Enjoy an early morning swim, or just sit back and relax on the beach. Later, you can visit Megalochori and get a glimpse into the traditional Greek village life. It is here that you can walk along its quaint alleyways before heading to 18th-century Prophet Elias Monastery, which is also the highest point of the island.


In the afternoon, visit the renowned archaeological site of Akrotiri. It is here that you can explore some of the best-preserved ruins of Minoan and learn about the Bronze Age civilization that thrived in the country for more than 1500 years. Walk through the semi-crumbled buildings and relics that are said to have been buried under the volcanic ashes for over 3.5 millennia.


After a day full of exploring the island, head to Ammoudi Port of Oia in the evening to enjoy a relaxing sunset sail on a catamaran. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the sea by enjoying a session of swimming or snorkelling. As the sun sets, you can enjoy some of the finest wines on board followed by a scrumptious barbeque dinner.
